Summary

This drawing and 1975.1.404 originally formed a single sheet that may have been part of a sketchbook. The two male figures, dressed in armor and bearing a spear, sword, and sphere, may represent heroes from a cycle of famous men or a chronicle of the world. The drawings, whose origin has been described as Sienese or Florentine, may be attributed to Arcangelo di Cola da Camerino, a painter from the Marches region (central eastern Italy), who was also active in Florence in the early 1420s and whose work reveals the influence of contemporary Florentine artists.
Attributed to Arcangelo di Cola da Camerino (Italian, b. Macerata (?), active 1416–29)
